BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Father and son charged in alleged workers comp scheme


The owners of a pair of commercial cleaning companies have each been charged with five felony counts of insurance fraud after a California Department of Insurance investigation found they allegedly underreported $12 million in employee wages and payroll to save on workers compensation insurance premiums.

Edgardo Cabrales Sr. and his son, Edgar Cabrales Jr., owners of San Jose-based Pine Building Maintenance and Network Facility Management, allegedly only secured workers comp insurance coverage for a “fraction” of their employees at both companies, resulting in $4.2 million in lost premiums, the department said in a statement issued Thursday.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office is prosecuting the case.
